It was fun doing this. I'm glad I let @gatszu
badger me into buying these 1339c's on sale instead of holding off for longer (as I had been doing) waiting for the AF18A, D5706C, or 13394C to go on sale.
And some more pics comparing my first attempt (975's) to the second (1339c). I tried using a darker polish (AE Dark Chili, vs Walnut base with Dark Chili on top) on these to darken the edge a bit, looks like it worked. *sidenote, check out the difference color 8 shades!
Nice! Now i want to antique my chukkas as well:)
Question to the experts:
Will this procedure actually harm water resistency of the soles?
